Consider the fact that so many guitarists from the 70s, 80s, and 90s point to Gary Moore Back the blues Flowers shirt Gary Moore as one of their fundamental influences (Vivian Campbell and Jon Sykes have both said they’d likely not be there at all if it weren’t for Gary Moore). He’s shown he has the ability to be as athletic and aggressive as the most demonic shredders and yet fall back into the slow hand groove of blues and jazz and be thoroughly convincing with both. Gary Moore is deserving to be considered one of the greats. End of story. I’ll admit that I have definitely not watched enough of Slash (compared to Gary) to be able to comment, though I just looked up some footage of him soloing and he is a very technical player, he’s definitely got great technique and the chops. And Gary of course really started his career in the 70s and 80s shred camp.

Best Gary Moore Back the blues Flowers shirt
Gary Moore tells the story of when he was recording Gary Moore Back the blues Flowers shirt album with Albert King. They were rehearsing the songs and Gary breaks into a solo during one of the songs, displaying amazing technique and lots of notes flying out a mile a minute. Yes, Bonamassa can and has demonstrated he can actually play real Blues, in the way the masters defined it and played. And he does very well when he stays in the actual genre. It is when he starts blasting million note a minute passages – not just a phrase here and there, but whole passages – that it breaks down and stops being real Blues. The same was the problem for Moore. He would rip out with these passages, blazing billions of notes a minute. The impressive solo, technique heavy playing, is not Blues. It is Blues Rock.
